Rhodes’s innovative campaign to sell the Iran deal is likely to be a model for how future administrations explain foreign policy to Congress and the public. The way in which most Americans have heard the story of the Iran deal presented — that the Obama administration began seriously engaging with Iranian officials in 2013 in order to take advantage of a new...

Deputy Secretary of State Tony Blinken's figure came after a Paris conference on how to stop the extremists ended without any new strategy to halt their campaign. It also comes months after the Pentagon dismissed such counts as "simply not a relevant figure" in the fight against the Islamic State group. Meanwhile, the Islamic State group launched a...

His account was challenged by soldiers who were on the flight, leading to a furor that prompted NBC to suspend Williams for six...

Thats not my judgment, its the judgment of PolitiFact, a site created to protect Democrats.

He was not specifically asked about Islamic State, but its pretty clear this is the group that was being referenced in the conversation.

He promised to have the troops out with 16 months of being elected, but lets calculate that time from when he entered office. January, 2009January, 2010.thats 12 months. Add six months to that and that brings us to June, 2010 (Were adding slow because we know the administration doesnt like to read). Are we anywhere near being out of Iraq? Are all of those brigades home, like he promised? No..he lied. Heres an interview with President...

    Did attorney general and senate hopeful Richard Blumenthal ever serve in Vietnam? Well, no. But according to The New York Times, Blumenthal is suggesting the opposite. Blumenthal also claims he served as the Captain of the Harvard swim team, despite records at the college showing that he was never on the team. We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam, Blumenthal said to a group gathered in Norwalk in March 2008. But Blumehthal according to the Times, obtained five military deferments from 1965 to 1970 and took steps to avoid going to war. In 1970,...

    Not just any Democratic Senate candidate, either. Its Richard Blumenthal, current attorney general of Connecticut, whom Chris Dodd made way for by retiring earlier this year. Hes been leading all Republican challengers by upwards of 20 points in the polls and was considered a mortal lock to win the seat in November. Until now. Follow the link for the full background of his military history. The five deferments arent the problem. This is the problem: We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam, Mr. Blumenthal said to the group gathered in Norwalk in March 2008....

    If you've ever wondered why politicians often tell gargantuous lies even though the truth is so easily revealed, you're really going to be scratching your head on this one. At a ceremony honoring veterans and senior citizens who sent presents to soldiers overseas, Connecticut Attorney General and Democratic Senate Candidate Richard Blumenthal said, "We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam." He may be right about learning something but Mr. Blumenthal never served in Vietnam.

    Current Attorney General of Connecticut, and democratic contender for the Senate seat currently held by Chris Dodd, Richard Blumenthal, has apparently lied about serving in Vietnam: "We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam, Mr. Blumenthal said to the group gathered in Norwalk in March 2008. And you exemplify it. Whatever we think about the war, whatever we call it Afghanistan or Iraq we owe our military men and women unconditional support. ...There was one problem: Mr. Blumenthal, a Democrat now running for the United States Senate, never served in Vietnam. He obtained...

    The NY Times has the story; the longtime crusading state Attorney General (he was Eliot Spitzer before Eliot Spitzer was), Richard Blumenthal has sometimes just implied it, but on other occasions (including one the NYT has on video) hes said outright that he served in the Marines in Vietnam, when in fact he enlisted in a stateside Marine Reserve unit only near the end of the war after obtaining five draft deferments to pursue his legal education. The deferments are nothing to be proud of, but theyre a common enough story among male political leaders of that generation in both...
